Diogo Jota was pleased to give supporters an afternoon to celebrate after Wolves defeated Aston Villa at a noisy Molineux.
Although admitting it was “just another win”, Jota knew the significance of a strong performance against the club’s neighbours from across the West Midlands. They duly delivered too, with Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez capping a fine team performance with the crucial goals to send Wolves into the international weekend in positive spirits.
On the Villa victory
“It’s just another win for us, three points. We knew it was important to win and we also know what kind of game means to the fans, so we were pleased to get the three points.”
On a brilliant first-half
“It may be (the best first-half). We always try to do our best, we did a very good first-half. Of course, they gave an answer in the second-half, that’s what the game’s about, but in the end the three points is all that matters.”
On the Premier League
“Each game is like a final, it’s very hard to win. It’s one of the best leagues in the world and we knew what a win meant on Sunday, so we now have a break and can come back better.”
On Traore’s threat
“He’s been doing that for a while (like the second goal). Fortunately for us he’s able to find the right pass and he’s a good weapon for us.”
